The Localism Act, introduced in 2012, aims at giving communities and individuals within them, more involvement in local issues. As part of these changes, which relate closely to Planning Applications rules, local councils can now choose to produce a Neighbourhood Plan which sets out their aspirations for future development of their area.

Beaudesert & Henley in Arden Neighbourhood Planning Applications Steering Group have developed a plan with a small team of volunteers including residents and councillors, which, when approved, will be used by planners to assist in decision making on future development of our town.

The latest version has been completed and approved by SDC, and will be on the agenda for the next JPC Ordinary Meeting on the 16th of March. Details of this very important publication will be presented by members of the NDP Team and an electronic copy can be found by clicking on the link below. A limited number of hard copies of the final and proposed plan booklet will be available from the Clerk at the meeting for scrutiny by residents before publication. It is your future Henley so do take the time to look through the plan and send comments to the Clerk to raise with the Council.
